West Lakeview Neighbors (WLVN)

West Lake View Neighbors (WLVN) aims to improve the quality of life for the area bounded by the west side of Racine to the east side of Ravenswood from the north side of Belmont to the south side of Addison between Racine and Ashland and Irving Park between Ashland and Ravenswood.  The group addresses zoning, traffic, liquor license, sidewalk café and other issues affecting the neighborhood and advises the 44th and 32nd Ward Aldermen.  In Fall of 2008, Sheil Park Neighbors and WLVN merged into one group.

Our meetings are held on the second Tuessday of every odd month (Jan, Mar, etc.) at 7:00 PM at the Mystic Celt, 3443 N. Southport. Meet and greet begins at 6:30 PM. The group discusses and reviews issues affecting our neighborhood and hears from local elected officials, Lakeview Chamber and others.  Our dues are $20 dollars per family. For a complete schedule of meetings or more information, please check the website, www.wlvn.org. 

Our mixed-use neighborhood has commercial space on Lincoln, Belmont and Ashland, mixed-use on Southport, and residential streets that make up the difference.  WLVN includes the Lincoln-Belmont Chicago Public Library, the Lake View YMCA on Marshfield and Roscoe, Gross Park (1700 block of Henderson), St. Luke’s Church and School, and St. Andrew’s Church and School, and Hamilton School.

WLVN’s new park and playlot on the west side of Lincoln at Addison has been a huge success.  The renovation of Sheil Park at Southport and Cornelia was completed summer 2010. In addition our Planning and Development Committee reviews proposed development projects and provides input and recommendations to Aldermen Tom Tunney ( 44th Ward) and Scott Waguespack (32nd Ward).

Elections were held November 2010.  The current board can be found on the website, www.wlvn.org:
